Blue Grouse Estate Winery and Vineyard Tasting

Blue_Grouse.jpg

Blue Grouse Estate is composed of 65 acres tucked away on a sunny Vancouver Island slope in the Cowichan Valley, named from a Salishan First Nations word meaning “the warm land”.

The warm, dry summers and mild, moist winters make the Cowichan Valley Canada’s only “cool” maritime Mediterranean climate. The Valley records sufficient growing ‘degree days’ during the Spring and Summer which provides good conditions for many vitis vinifera grape varietals that bud late and ripen early. The influence of global warming appears to be influencing the ripening prospects for grape growing, but varietal and site selection, combined with our vineyard management practices, remain critical to their success.

Join us for a tasting of those sustainably-farmed wines.
